“We had another strong quarter and continued to build momentum in our business. Gross margin improved materially and profit growth was outstanding,” said George P. Sakellaris, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ameresco. “Our recurring revenue streams, particularly energy sales, drove the margin performance and offset the natural variability in project revenue. Visibility improved yet again, with project backlog growing to over $2 billion and asset development backlog growing to 133MWe. The project business continues to benefit from the trend to larger and more complex projects, which plays to our strength in design, engineering and management. The solid financial performance and growing backlog this quarter reinforces our optimistic outlook for the rest of 2018 and beyond.”
